Conversations with Wright Morris book.

Morris discourses the way he writes-a tumbleweed in a middle distance between splintered realities and rich imaginings. One welcomes this thoughtful probe of a unique and rough-grained, endemically American talent. In 1975 a portfolio of literati gathered at the University of Nebraska to explore the territory, style, and preoccupations of novelist Wright Morris, a native son, and these are the resulting highlights: four exchanges with Morris and three lectures about him, plus an essay and a sheaf of photographs by this pioneering poet of ""dry places"" in a demythicized America.

Wright Marion Morris was an American novelist, photographer, and essayist. In 1919, the family moved to Omaha, where they resided until 1924. Morris received numerous honors in addition to the National Book Awards for The Field of Vision and Plains Song.

This book is an attempt to approach the work of a leading American novelist from both sides of the looking-glass—from the opposite, but not necessarily opposing, points of view of the writer/creator and the reader/critic. In 1975, while the author was visiting professor of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, several scholar-critics (among them John W. Aldridge, Wayne C. Booth, and David Madden) were invited to speak about his craft and artistic aims and principles and to record conversations with him about issues growing from their addresses. Since Morris is also an important photographer, facets of his achievement in this field were considered by Peter C. Bunnell. In addition to four conversations, three lectures, and a portfolio of twelve photographs, this volume includes an essay by Wright Morris and a bibliography compiled by Robert L. Boyce.
